Many businesses and self-employed workers face a period of uncertainty and possible loss of income as a result of the coronavirus. The Government has announced a package of financial and other measures to help manage these impacts - including wage subsidies, business rates reliefs, statutory sick pay reliefs, small business grants and loans.
COVID-19 business grant payments
All businesses with a rateable value of less than £15,000 and who are already in receipt of Small Business Rate Relief, Rural Rate Relief or tapered relief will also be eligible for a £10,000 Small Business Grant. Both schemes require businesses to have been registered for business rates on or before 11 March 2020.
In addition, businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors with a rateable value of between £15,000 and £51,000 will be eligible for a £25,000 grant under the Government's Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant scheme to help mitigate the loss of trade or other impacts of the virus.
